Writing A Thesis

What is interesting about writing a Masters Thesis here compared to back home in the US is that the thesis you write and where you do it is completely up to you. When I think of writing a thesis in the US, I assume the project has been planned for a year before the project start, you would work under a lead professor who is doing research in your area of interest and writing a thesis would mean 100 plus pages and one year of work. Here, the project is chosen and written by you. It is possible to get a project with a company but the decision on what kind of project it will be will be completely up to you. It is your chance to spread your wings and dig deep into a subject of your choosing, flex your company contacts muscle and transition into the working world. I see it more of as a short term internship.
